Atoms For Peace

Soundhalo is a new live-music app that lets people download live shows, in high quality, in real time. That seems like the exact opposite of the whole “put your phones away at the show” ethos, but its makers are actually hoping it’ll make concertgoers less likely to tape the shows on their phones, and it also gives royalties to the artists. Thom Yorke’s Atoms For Peace are the first band to try out the service, which launched with their show at London’s Roundhouse last night. Below, check out the Soundhalo footage of them playing “The Clock,” from Yorke’s solo album The Eraser. Even if you never end up using the app, it looks and sounds pretty great.

  1. Nice to see Thom and Nigel also actively promoting new business forms as well as criticising existing ones.

  2. I wonder if they’ll do festivals (either as a whole or if a certain bands like Atoms of Peace who’ve agreed to do this will be able to have this done to them if they were playing at a festival/would they need both the permission of the artist and festival or one or the other).
